Tassels and Tzitzit
Numbers 15:38 - "Speak to the children of Israel: Tell them to make tassels on the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and to put a blue thread in the tassels of the corners.
- "And you shall have the tassel, that you may look upon it and remember all the commandments of YEHOVAH and do them, and that you [may] not follow the harlotry to which your own heart and your own eyes are inclined,
- "and that you may remember and do all My commandments and be holy for your Elohim.
So that is the commandment. That is what we are told to obey. And most people do not even realize that this commandment even exists in the Scripture. But it is there.
Now some people believe that this particular commandment has now been set aside or abolished or done away with; we do not have to do it anymore because now we have the Holy Spirit to remind us of the commandments and we do not need a set of strings to remind us of commandments. But let's look at their reasoning for a minute. Yeshua did say:
John 14:26 - "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. So, they believe, those who regard this as being abolished, that the Holy Spirit now is what Yehovah has given us to bring to memory the things that we are told to do. But we have to be careful about using human reasoning to scratch out or abolish Yehovah commandments. We have to be really careful about that.
Just because the Holy Spirit is able to bring Yehovah’s Word to our remembrance does not mean we no longer will have any kind of reminders at all about Yehovah’s Word and that the Holy Spirit substitutes everything. Because the truth is, we have all kinds of reminders in Scripture.
